The original half-hour pudding I grew up with. Maple - YUM!
10x15 baking pan
Start a kettle of water on to boil, you'll need 4 cups.
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 cups flour
4 tsp. baking powder
1 cup (or slightly more) water
Mix together, add enough water to be just spreadable. Spread over the bottom of the 10x15 pan.
4 cups boiling water
2 Tbsp. margarine
2 cups brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. maple flavouring
Mix well and pour over batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, remove from oven and cool at bit before serving.
A half size of this recipe can be made in a casserole dish or oven proof bowl.
